When Do Climahysterics Get Their Own Churches?
I hope they get some sort of cute uniform, too. Something low cut and sexy. For the women. Maybe they can all wear lettuce bikini’s, like the PETA wackos.
But the real fear driving climate alarmists wild is that a more rational approach to the fundamentalist religion of global warming may be in the ascendancy – whether in the parliamentary offices of the world’s largest trading bloc or in the living rooms of Blacktown.
Are the disciples of AGW part of a religion? We’ll come back to that shortly.
As the global financial crisis takes hold, perhaps people are starting to wonder whether the so-called precautionary principle, which would have us accept enormous new taxes in the guise of an emissions trading scheme and curtail economic growth, is justified, based on what we actually know about climate.
One of Australia’s leading enviro-sceptics, the geologist and University of Adelaide professor Ian Plimer, 62, says he has noticed audiences becoming more receptive to his message that climate change has always occurred and there is nothing we can do to stop it.
In a speech at the American Club in Sydney on Monday night for Quadrant magazine, titled Human-Induced Climate Change – A Lot Of Hot Air, Plimer debunked climate-change myths.
“Climates always change,” he said. Our climate has changed in cycles over millions of years, as the orbit of the planet wobbles and our distance from the sun changes, for instance, or as the sun itself produces variable amounts of radiation. “All of this affects climate. It is impossible to stop climate change. Climates have always changed and they always will.”
You mean there is no reason to spend trillions, hundreds of trillions, on “defeating climate change?”
There was much more but essentially Plimer’s message is that the idea humans cause climate change has become a fundamentalist religion which is corrupting science. It is embedded with a fear of nature and embraced principally by city people who have lost touch with nature.
Human-caused climate change is being “promoted with religious zeal … there are fundamentalist organisations which will do anything to silence critics. They have their holy books, their prophet [is] Al Gore. And they are promoting a story which is frightening us witless [using] guilt [and urging] penance.”
And like Democrats who claim to be Catholics, the Climahysterics usually only pay lip service to the dogma of AGW, instead thinking that the fix is something for some other entitity to do, usually the government. Because they are so wise. And because it allows the Goracle disciples to drive their SUVs to little Johnny’s soccer game and watch it under those big, energy sucking lights.
As the saying goes, follow the money. There is quite a bit of money involved in the whole AGW pyramid scheme. Particularly a proposal for lots of it from “government.” Who gets it? And who is pushing it? Where does it all go? Something fun to do is to Google around to find out what happened to all the Live Earth money.
Finally, I’m not quite sure who is more rabid about their religion: the Climahysterics or the Islamic extremists. So far, fortunately, the Climahysterics are still scared of actual guns.
